I had a wisdom tooth pulled 4 days ago. I was prescribed antibiotics and Percocet. I'm not in too much pain,and I don't want to continue with the Percocet. I am still swollen though, and would like to take a NSAID instead of just Tylenol. I know I shouldn't take aspirin because of bleeding.... But can I take an Advil or aleve?

  • Yes advil is safe but do consult the doctor who treated you. Though you are not experiencing any pain but should follow the complete course of medications. Dont take aspirin, it will thin you blood thereby causing dislodgement of clot...Dont worry the swelling will subside in a week...for more info visit the link...http://www.identalhub.com/article_understanding-wisdom-teeth-152.aspx
